Event Staffing

All catering, Emergency Medical Technicians (EMT's), electrical services, telecommunications, connectivity, and air/water/drain connections are exclusive services of Washington State Convention Center. Event staffing for locations where access control is a factor must be provided by WSCC staff. These include admission/door attendants, badge checkers, coat or parcel/luggage check staff, ticket takers, crowd management staff, and loading dock/transportation access.

We invite you to choose your own service contractor and suppliers for freight handling, aisle and booth carpet cleaning, and registration services.  We have experience with local and national firms and will be happy to work with the contractors you select. WSCC has an on-site preferred audio/visual provider that can serve all your needs. Should you choose an outside vendor, the built-in house sound system can be used for a nominal use fee and will be operated by our preferred provider. The use fee covers the sound system, the first microphone and connection to the house system for centralized recording of sessions on Levels 4 and 6.

ADMISSION ATTENDANTS
